Attorney, Candidate for Barrington Town Council, Former Congressional Aide
I am an accomplished, goal-oriented attorney admitted to the New York State Bar, with extensive experience in civil litigation and a deep commitment to progressive values. I have a track record of successfully litigating on behalf of individuals in cases as varied as workplace liability, transportation, product liability, assault and small business cases.
I am eligible to serve as in-house counsel in Rhode Island or Massachusetts, have consulted or served on the board for several nonprofit organizations and co-founded at talk radio station. Upon graduating from Cornell Law School and passing the bar, I worked as a legislative aide in the US House of Representatives where I handled environmental, judiciary and national defense issues.
I remain active in my community, running as a NOW-endorsed Democratic candidate for Town Council in Barrington, Rhode Island, serving on the Barrington Economic Development Commission and coaching youth sports.
Civil Litigation Experience
I am familiar with all aspects of civil litigation. I have argued at the trial and appellate levels, conducted scores of depositions, negotiated settlements and managed all phases of the investigative and discovery process in a wide variety of cases.
During a nearly two decade career, I have successfully worked to enforce the rights of catastrophically injured workers, assault victims, victims of negligence, surviving spouses of those who lost their lives to medical malpractice, small business owners and those wrongfully denied coverage by insurance companies.
I am looking to make a broader impact at this stage of my career by applying this skill set to a mission-driven organization.
I have worked in Congress, mission-driven nonprofits and on behalf of community organizations in order to achieve a more just, equitable and sustainable world. I am a passionate supporter of renewable energy, voting rights and education, having served youth sports, academic and social welfare organizations my entire career. I also co-founded a progressive talk radio station to help advocate for these causes, served on the board of a nonprofit devoted to reducing the risk of violence against women and at-risk youth and have committed my current campaign to focusing on improving diversity in my community. In 2016, I proudly worked to ensure the voting rights of all voters in Pittsburgh Pennsylvania (general election) and Buffalo, New York (primary election).
